Blizzard's Redneck Rampage?

IncGamers has word that Blizzard Entertainment has secured the rights to Redneck Rampage, Xatrix Entertainment's Build-engine hillbilly shooter released in 1997, and that Blizzard now owns the trademarks for all three titles in the series, Redneck Rampage, Redneck Rampage Rides Again, and Redneck Rampage Suckin' Grits on Route 66. Xatrix eventually became Gray Matter Interactive and was acquired by Activision in 2002 and eventually merged into Treyarch, but the rights did not belong to Activision Blizzard before now, as they were sold off to Vivendi in 2004. Blizzard recently indicated they have a fifth game in development, and while a campy shooter may not seem to be their sort of project, Incgamers notes that several developers at Blizzard actually worked on the Redneck Rampage games back in the day.
